At its discretion, the University of
Montevallo may provide “directory information” in accordance with the provisions
of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).
Directory information is
defined as that information which would not generally be considered harmful or
an invasion of privacy if disclosed. Designated directory information at

Students must consider very carefully the consequences of a decision to
withhold directory information. A non-disclosure block will call for the
University of Montevallo not to release all “directory information”, including
inclusion in the online and printed student directory. Thus, any future
requests for such information from non-institutional persons or organizations
will be refused.
The University will honor the
student’s request to withhold directory information but cannot assume
responsibility to contact the student for subsequent permission to release this
information. Regardless of the effect upon the student, the University of
Montevallo assumes no liability as a result of honoring your instructions that
such information by withheld.
Although the initial request may
be filed at any time, requests for non-disclosure will be honored by the
University until removed, in writing, by the student.
